Trump may eye pardon for Muhammad Ali, though late champ may not need one

  • Ali was stripped of his heavyweight crown in 1967 but his legal fight ended in 1971, when the Supreme Court ruled in his favor. He regained the boxing title in 1974 and died in 2016.
  • Trump has been on a clemency kick, and earlier this week commuted the life sentence of a woman whose cause was championed by reality television star Kim Kardashian West.
